There is no other time like Halloween. Kids waiting all year long for that night and anticipating mood contaminate their parents too. Although it is not a holiday, we treat it like one. Children go to show off theirs current costumes and for adults there is no other night we visit so many of our neighbours at once!

Halloween Cookies Recipe

Halloween Sugar Cookies Recipe


▢ 1 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened at room temperature

▢ 2 cups white sugar

▢ 4 eggs

▢ 5 cups all-purpose flour

▢ 1 teaspoon baking powder

▢ 1 teaspoons vanilla extract

▢ 1 teaspoons salt

▢ zest from 1 orange



For these cookies I used this royal icing recipe:

▢ 3 1/2 cups confectioners’ (powder) sugar, sifted

▢ 1/4 cup meringue powder

▢ 9–10 Tablespoons room temperature water

▢ 8 Tablespoons room temperature water

▢ 1 Tablespoon room of orange extract (optional)

▢ food coloring (preferably gel)




  • In a large bowl, or using the paddle attachment in the mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth.
  • Add eggs and vanilla.
  • Stir in the flour, baking powder and salt.
  • Add orange zest.
  • Divide the dough in half, cover and refrigerate for at least one hour, or event overnight.
  • Preheat the oven to 400°F / 400°C .
  • Take out one part of dough from the fridge.
  • Roll the dough 1/4 to 1/2″ thick.
  • Cut the dough into shapes with favorite cookie cutters.
  • Transfer the cookies parchment-lined baking sheet.
  • Bake for 6 to 8 minutes. (Preferably catch the moment, just before cookies starts to be lightly brown on edges. That’s OK, but definitely don’t wait much longer, because they are turning brown very quickly 🙂
  • Allow cookies to cool fully before filling. Repeat process with the second portion of dough and any excess dough.
  • Lightly dust the cookies with confectioners’ sugar or decorate with royal icing.
